About E-bike Service Certification
The Certification for e-bike servicing largely revolves around electric vehicles, battery systems and the related electronic systems used within these vehicles. Increasing penetration of e-bikes over conventional bicycles is driving OEMs to invest in developing the technical skills of mechanics in various servicing stations for dealing with issues related to their e-bike models. Satisfaction of e-bike customers largely depends on efficacious after-sales services. Technically certified mechanics offer specialized services to the customers and help build the brand image of the OEM which produced the product.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global E-bike service certification market to grow at a CAGR of 9.50% during the period 2017-2021.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Rev-Bikes, and Yamaha Motor Co.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is inclusion of varied trainees. E-bike service certification courses have been conducted primarily for skilled technicians. However, OEMs of e-bikes have been catering to the distributors of bicycles with their certification classes to educate them about the advantages of e-bikes over conventional cycles. This is mainly to encourage bicycle distributors to stock e-bikes in their outlets and accelerate the sales of the OEMs' e-bikes.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is rising preference for e-bikes. Increased penetration of e-bikes within a region raises the demand for skilled technicians to service these vehicles. However, the unavailability of qualified service technicians would adversely affect the sales of e-bikes. Hence, OEMs would be driven to hold service certification courses for the vendors and technicians of local service centers to promote the aftersales services. E-bikes are fast-replacing conventional bicycles which prove to be too strenuous for the recreational riders and the common public to commute with. The assisted pedaling system in e-bikes allows the user to ride over uneven surfaces with ease.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is lack of proper training facilities of e-bike certification centers. E-bike service certification courses are mainly conducted as classroom sessions for technicians to get limited hands-on equipment intensive training on the technologies used in the e-bikes. These e-bike service certification classes are mainly conducted for experienced technicians and seasoned distributors of e-bikes; the training classes are meant to help the technicians and dealers with authorizing and adding value to their service delivery. Hence, these retail certification centers would opt to have short sessions to conclude the entire session.
